    10 Great Mexican Restaurants In Sydney


    There’s a lot to love about Sydney’s Mexican restaurants—from traditional taquerias to eateries where mod-Mexico shines like the salt crust on a margarita. We’ve braved the spiciest salsas, chili-est chilies and the most fabulous fajitas to compile this list of the 10 best.

    So Cal, Neutral Bay

     

    SoCal is most definitely southern Californian in both its vibe and cuisine. A beach-inspired fit-out and a bright, airy, leafy courtyard create the mood—then the food does the rest. The honest-to-goodness Cal-Mex offerings might include smoked brisket, delicate scallop ceviche, herby spiced black beans and a BBQ pork quesadilla. Six agave-based cocktails only add to the deliciousness.

    This food truck has built a loyal following based on only three things: nachos, burritos and soft-shell tacos. But done very, very well. Fill your tacos with slow-roasted chipotle beef or pork cooked in citrus and guajillo chilli, and decide whether you’re a hot, extra hot or inferno type of person. Follow CM’s Instagram to find out where the truck is popping up next.

    Uruguay meets Mexico at this cozy cafe-cum-restaurant serving up the best in Latin American home-cooking. A must-try is the sopa Azteca (tortilla soup), where fried tortilla strips are drenched in a rich, red chicken broth, topped with lime wedges and coriander. Equally delicious is the chivito al plato, the Uruguayan take on a steak sandwich, which features an assemblage of thin tender steak piled with everything from ham to fried eggs.

    Located in The Eastern Hotel, this restaurant and rooftop bar features an inspired Mexican fit-out: think hand-painted tiles, religious iconography and Day of the Dead skeletons. El Topo’s chefs deliver mod-Mexican share plates such as fried plantain, roast crickets, scallop ceviche with strawberry salsa, coffee-marinated flank steak and a mushroom taco with pumpkin mole. 

    The street food at Chica Bonita is well worth the trip on the ferry over to Manly. Like Bondi Junction’s El Topo, the decor is muchos Mexican—even the toilets are plastered in cut-outs from Mexican newspapers. The drinking/eating balance is pretty close to perfect here, with killer margaritas and great Mexican beers matched with heavenly tacos and delicious tortillas.

    At its two Sydney locations, Dos Senoritas prides itself on serving simple, authentic Mexican dishes where flavour is key. While you’re nibbling on the complimentary corn chips and salsa, try to decide which taco is your poison: gringo style (flour), street style (corn) or Tex Mex (crispy). Oh, and save some room for the one-is-never-enough churros.

    There’s plenty to love about this Glebe mainstay (including that fabulous name): from the lip-smacking margaritas and huge array of tequilas to the epic hot sauces. Prices are reasonable and servings are generous. Make sure you try the deep-fried Chimichanga burrito and queso fundido, a moreish gooey Mexican cheese dip served with crisp corn chips.   

    Under the guidance of Dan Hong, one of Sydney’s brightest and boldest chefs, this Mexican joint at the Excelsior Hotel in Surry Hills is very hot property. You’ll need to get in early on a weekend to enjoy the menu inspired by LA taco trucks. You may even have to queue—but once you’re sipping on a jalapeno margarita or one of 25 varieties of tequila, it probably won’t matter too much.

    There’s a subtlety about Méjico (pronounced ‘Meh-hee-ko’), both in the decor and the food offerings. It’s mod-Mexican executed beautifully: empanadas filled with beef cheek and bone marrow; tacos stuffed with baked king trout or smoked lentils; sweet corn ‘ribs’ served with agave mayo; chipotle- and beer-glazed pork ribs. And you won’t want to miss the signature guacamole—freshly smashed to order at your table.

    Wood-fired dishes are the speciality in this pretty, white-washed eatery on busy Bondi Road (‘carbón’ is Spanish for charcoal). Charcoal grilling (parrilla) and a roasting box known as a caja china are what create all the great smoky flavours in dishes such as roasted lamb shoulder with Grandma’s mole and fire-roasted chicken with mango habanero salsa. If your tastes run a little simpler, the tacos are absolutely top-notch, too.

    9 Epic Things To Do In Sydney This Weekend


    Sure, a few restrictions might still be in place this weekend—but there’s plenty to get out and do here in Sydney (and some awesome sunshine on the cards too). 

    Headling your weekend are two live and free gigs—Seymour Nights at the Seymour Centre, and Surf Club Sundays at Redfern Surf Club. We’ve also found a super-special one-off seven-course brunch, a month-long foodie festival in full flight up on the Northern Beaches, an enormous antiques fair, and an illuminated night sculpture walk too. 

    Remember to stay COVID safe, mask up and isolate if and when you need to. You can read more about this weekend’s restrictions here, and about NSW COVID case locations here.

    Here are nine epic things to do in Sydney this weekend.

    Friday 14 May

    Listen To Local Artists And New Sounds At This Free Courtyard Concert Series 

    Missing live music? The Seymour Centre’s new free concert series “Seymour Nights” is for you. Running on Fridays throughout May and June, the program will feature 10 live shows from some of Australia’s most exciting music talent. Kicking off this week is Newcastle-based multi-instrumentalist Tom Myers with a drum-heavy alternative rock mood that definitely feels a little like Silverchair, followed up by Fleetwood Mac-esque folk from The Heart Collectors. There’ll also be food trucks on-site and hey, did we mention it’s free? For more information on the program and performers, head over here

    Sunday 16 May

    Tuck Into Nour X Maha’s Next Level 7-Course Brunch 

    We know it’s not really a weekend without brunch—but if you’re looking to really (really) dial things up, you’ll want to hit Nour in Surry Hills this Sunday. Nour is one of our favourite brunch spots in Sydney, but this weekend they will be doing a special one-off seven-course brunch in partnership with Melbourne chef, Shane Delia of Maha. 

    The one-off menu pays hommage to Delia and Nour executive chef Paul Farag’s Middle Eastern heritage, and on the sharing menu are things like whipped cod roe filled borek bun, with dill, and Yarra Valley salmon caviar (swoon!); a duck and pine manoush; and baharat spiced beef crackling, with ricotta, wagyu basturma, and shankleesh (drool). During your feast, you’ll be treated to music from rising star singer-songwriter Ellis Hall. The brunch is $79 per person and you can (and should) book here

    Do Your Sunday Session At Surf Club Sundays—Redfern Surf Club’s New Free Live Music Party

    Redfern Surf Club is a fun neighborhood bar that serves up Aussie craft beer, natural wine, tasty cocktails, and good vibes. The club is led by the owners and live music lovers Yannick Maslard (ex-Oxford Art Factory) and Jade New (ex-Future Musical Festival, Secret Sounds). In partnership with FBi Radio and Create NSW, these guys are intro’ing an all-new live music event called Surf Club Sundays, which will run every week until Sunday 13 June 13. Dipping into a wide range of sounds, it’ll be 100% free to attend too. 

    “Having live music at the Surf Club has always been part of our long-term plan and feels really natural in the space,” says New. “The music community embraced us from the start, so we’re excited to get these shows happening now and in the future.”

    This Sunday from 4pm, you’ll find 19-year-old pop prodigy MAY-A joined by Liyah Knight with silky tracks of sultry R&B, and Melbourne artist D’Arcy Spiller’s indie vocals. Here’s more good news for you all: 4pm – 6pm at Redfern Surf Club also happens to be “Mega Happy Hour” with the food specials at Redfern Surf Club. More info is here

    Channel A Romantic Countryside Mood At The Leo & Lin Warehouse Sale

    This weekend, NOX Night Sculpture Walk is popping up for three nights at Randwick’s Environment Park, which will see artists from UNSW Art & Design completely transform the park and wetlands into an actual illuminated outdoor gallery. The artworks will be installed around a 1.5km loop walk that will start and end at the Randwick Community Centre. The best part? All the artworks will actually be powered and lit by renewable energy.

    Once you’ve worked your way around the night walk, you can also hit the new NOX Night Cinema which will be screening short films and animations locked for nightly rotations in the auditorium. Naturally, you’ll work up an appetite and the good news is that there’ll be local food trucks slinging takeaway feeds from 5pm to 9pm on each of the three nights.

    Contemplate Paradise Gardens At This New Exhibition

    Opening this Thursday at Jerico Contemporary is Tom Keukenmeester’s first-ever solo exhibition There Were Many Edens. Showcasing an utopian environment liberated from the boundaries of time and place, Keukenmeester has been inspired by the stories and myths of the beginning of time. For this show, the Melbourne-based artist has created six European portrait-style oil paintings and seven hand-built ceramics that explore the biblical “Garden of Eden” and ancient religious paradise gardens. It’s a 2D and 3D experience that merges past, present, and future, combining the real and imagined, the human and the animal, seeking to present a dreamlike world. More info is here

    This year, on Saturday and Sunday, you’ll also find a unique showcase of the collection of 1920s gowns modelled on the catwalk and hear jewellery experts talk about seeking out, managing, and caring for vintage pieces and priceless jewellery collection. More details are here

    Snag a $20 Ticket and Drink Up For Australian Cocktail Month  

    You probably can’t imagine Sydney without its bars, bartenders, spirits, cocktails, wine, bubbles, and everything in between—and we can’t either. During the past year, we’ve seen COVID take a hard hit on the industry. Now, a brand new initiative titled Australian Cocktail Month is here to help us hit our favourite bars again and help the industry get back on its feet.

    For its inaugural edition, Australian Cocktail Month has partnered with 72 bars across Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Adelaide.

Simply purchase a $20 ticket, which you can then flash at participating venues (including Maybe Sammy, the Barber Shop, and The Roosevelt) for discounted cocktails and an exclusive menu. Head over here for more details and tickets.

    SandSong: Stories from the Great Sandy Desert — Bangarra Dance Theatre


    Set in Walmajarri Country, this powerful performance explores the displacement and survival of First Nations people.

    Bangarra Dance Theatre is returning to the stage with a striking new work — Sandsong: Stories from the Great Sandy Desert — this winter. It’s the company’s first new production at Sydney Opera House since COVID-19 closures, so it comes with much anticipation.

    Set in Walmajarri Country, which spans the Great Sandy Desert and Kimberley regions of Western Australia, this powerful performance explores the displacement and survival of First Nations people in this part of Australia, particularly between the 1920–1960s.

    Artistic Director Stephen Page and Associate Artistic Director Frances Rings have choreographed this breathtaking new work in consultation with Wangkajunga and Walmajarri Elders, reaffirming Bangarra’s place as the leading performing arts company for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
